About This Course
Whether you're tackling calculus for the first time, studying for a big test or reviewing concepts you learned years ago, you'll find the information you need in Math 104. Dr. Erin Lennon has taught math at just about every level and knows how to break a complex concept down into its basic components to make it easy to follow. Learn how to craft a function that shows what happens to someone who's shot out of a cannon, or calculate the velocity of your morning commute.
You can take free video quizzes to see what you've learned and what you need to review. Before you know it, you'll be throwing around terms like 'higher-order derivative' and 'intermediate value theorem' with confidence.
